Google maps

Google  add a feature to Google Maps that lets you opt to share your location in (near) real time with your close friends and family. Now they’re fleshing out that info with another important little detail: your phone’s remaining battery charge.

If you try to ping someone’s location and their phone is dead, there’s not much an app can do.

Did they lose signal? Did someone steal their phone? Source Link:
